How to Become a True Unicorn the DIY Way ...

Unicorns are beautiful, mystical, magical, mysterious, and mythical. They are the specialest [sic] of special snowflakes. Who doesn't want to be a unicorn? You might think that becoming more like a mythical creature is impossible. Before you start in about how unicorns aren't real and humans can't turn into horses anyway and science biology blah blah blah, I ask you this: is it not true that we can be anything we want to be? Okay, maybe not, but if you really dig those gorgeous beasts, these DIYs will bring you one step closer to unicorn perfection.

A Mounted Unicorn Head Made of Papier-mâché Tutorial: soapdelinews.com

Normally I'm against the mounting of animal heads on walls, but since no animals are harmed in the making of this craft, I'm going to let it slide. Of course, a few books may be harmed, so just … try to use books that are already damaged. Don't kill books.

You are a bad-ass unicorn. Why not let the world know it? Seriously, if unicorns are your bag, this is a great way to wear a little something special every day.

9 Coffee is for Unicorns

All you need are some Sharpies and a plain coffee mug. This one is for a teacher so it also has a great Dr. Seuss quote on the opposite side – “Be awesome! Be a book nut!” – but you could add anything you want. Because you're a unicorn.
